It's been a while, but I'm glad to be back. Between getting a new apartment (stay tuned for a series on that later) and traveling around the world, I've been restless but beyond grateful to have the opportunity to do what I do!
Without further adieu, let's get right to it!
When I first started blogging, one of the first brands I partnered with was PICARD, and I'm happy to be working with them years later! PICARDis a German company founded in 1928 specializing in quality yet affordable leather goods and accessories. This is their 90th anniversary!! One of my favorite things about them is they take great pride in all aspects of their company from their employees and customers, to the environment, as well as the production process to ensure consistency and that every bag is made to perfection.
Fun Fact: Did you know PICARD was one of the first brands to put their name on their bags? I assumed it was always a thing, but they were one of the originals.
Today's post is about one of my favorite pieces of style advice: investin quality accessories, specifically bags!
Myth: Timeless bags only consist of nude, brown, white or black. False!
What makes a bag timeless is not the color, but rather the shape and the quality. Trends come and go, but certain things stick, including the bucket bag. Did you know this design has been around since the early 1900s?! PICARD recently launched their spring collection with my favorite piece being this gold bucket bag, which is also available in silver. Since I wear gold 99% of the time, it matches nearly everything in my closet and can be effortlessly dressed up or down.
Side note:I highly recommend investing in at least one gold or silver bag (depending on which color jewelry you wear most) since it's guaranteed to match whatever you're wearing versus a solid color which takes more effort to style.
